I love, love, LOVE this class! I loved it so much, in fact, that in the space of one month, I went from level 1 to level 48. Then in another month, jumped 15 levels to level 63. We get the best armor in the game (next to privateers), some very good damage outputs, very high health, and decent dodge/accuracy! I'm not kidding when I say this, but I think buccaneers may be the most powerful class in the game. Great in PvP, great in PvE, you name it.
